2nd Favourite Team

1 - Michael McNiven already meets the requirement.
2 - Chiarot is better than Edmundson and has a better contract. Edmundson won’t be protected, and if Seattle has the stupidity to pick him, most habs fans would rejoice. But it is likely that Seattle picks the player that has the best season out of Kulak, Mete, Juulsen, & Fleury.
3 - Poehling is exempt, and not worthy of a spot even if he were. And Armia probably doesn’t come back, even if he did, it would be after the expansion draft. It would be ridiculous for the habs not to protect Toffoli or Anderson.</div></div>
1) McNiven might not even be worth a contract and may go elsewhere seeing as he's 4th on the Habs depth chart (Europe). But ok I guess this is a possibility.
2) Maybe Chariot is better, but they have the same $$$ value contract but Chariot's is shorter. SO if anything Chariot has a worse contract because he can get a raise sooner, which he will.
3) Peohling and Evans are <strong>NOT</strong> exempt. We'll see about Toffoli and Anderson, and how this season goes, but they may be worth to leave dangling.
